Niksa, why do you think that Ubuntu does not support it?
Yes, you tell me. I once chatted with some Ubuntu folks on IRC and they got very agitated over it but refused to go into technical details, refused to tell me what exactly breaks. They sounded like Microsoft: "don't use it! don't use it! don't use it!" ... Yeah? Right. But I am still waiting for a detailed explanation what's supposed to break and how come I have not yet experienced any of those "catastrophic Automatix failures". As a matter of fact I'd really like to experience this so I can troubleshoot it and help those guys improve their nifty little program
... But so far I haven't seen Automatix break anything. Not on Mint, not on Ubuntu, not on Debian Etch.
